Voxengo Elephant - User Reviews
Well this is a very strange point of view I have achivied after trying out
the Voxengo mastering tools.They sound superb in confront to others.I don't want to repeat myself but Soniformer and Elephant have given the results of a TC Electronic master (or even better).So I now look at the audio world in another way -There are some things in life that money can't buy,even your talent and devotion to the audio world- Your intelectual property should cost more and more but you kept this simple.Well I am astonished with Curve EQ and Lampthruster which gave us the ability to throw some tube racks out the window.And finaly r8brain Pro and Free that helped to over come the need to by those expensive and bother some converters that seems to me just take up space and confort.A big thank you from a young composer but very careful to sound quality and final products.You made it people transparency,clarity,punch,artistic design,warmth and consistency will have the VOXENGO stamp over them for a long time
A word on Elephant. I use quite an array of plug-in processors and effects(within my DAW) in my work. Some are very expensive and do an incredibly professional job (provided you take the time to learn how to use them). Heres one of them with a slight exception.
Elephant is an excellent track limiter. Especially for rhythm and drum tracks. Acceptional control with a silky, yet somewhat nuetral sound. Its user friendly with a simple, but effective interface.
The exception.........its not one of the more expensive products. The results just sound like it.
I have been very pleased in using several of the Voxengo processors in different professional projects. After learning what they do well ( and they do alot ), sound sculpting becomes that much easier.
Also...my feelings tell me that this company isn't going to rest on its laurels and there are further treats to come.
Finally! Thank you! I've remixed or remastered allot of music recently using a varity of Voxengo products and the difference is amazing. The plugins are well designed. From TV commercials to Fantsatic 4 trailers to Christian music to Rap - these plugins give me the sound i hear in my head.
There's not much to say about the products. They're just fantastic.
Can't really remember how I mastered in my pre Elephant days.
Just bought the convolution suite and looking forward to spending some quality time with it.
i have tested the demo of the elephant just 5 minutes ago , tried to use some preset,s , clicked on punch+6db and boom!! a damn miracle!
it just elevated my whole mix, it,s feels like having it mastered profecionally.. off course there is a bleep in the demo version every 30 sec .. haha witch i completely understand.. but i am convinced and i want it as fast as possible.. go go voxengo
I really tried a lot of limiting plugins and i really can say that Voxengo's Elephant2 is definitely the best limiting plugin out there.
While other limiters start to pump, distort or change the sound to unnatural frequencies, Elephant2 is adding a lot of punch and volume to the sound material, while keeping the signal warm and clean.
That's how it should be!
